If you have ever visited a high-end resort, important building or lovely garden or park you have probably seen a water fountain. This is not just a coincidence; water features blend beautifully with landscape design and architecture. Water is a natural element that is lovely to behold and soothing to the ear. Water fountains are elegant and charming but that is not all, they boast a variety of features that take them great for either indoor or outdoor use at your home. Below are 4 reasons we encourage everyone to consider implementing a water fountain into their home’s architectural design – whether indoor or outdoor.
- There is no questioning it – water fountains are beautiful. But, they are even more beautiful when they are made of carved natural stone. The best part about using natural stone is that over time and with use it will only continue to get more beautiful. There are natural stone fountains in Europe that are centuries old and still running beautifully – this is because it is not a cheaply manufactured water fountain, it is made of stone which is durable.
- Just about every spa in the world has a water fountain because the sound of trickling water is naturally calming. Many studies have shown that people are naturally relaxed by the sound of trickling and running water and that the negative ions that the water puts out also help relax people nearby. Just imagine sitting near a soothing fountain while you sip your tea, or lying in bed and falling asleep to the sound of your fountain – it would certainly be more calming than trying to relax without it.
- Ambient Sound
- If you live in a busy residential area or just have a loud neighbor you may want to reduce the ambient noise that your neighborhood produces. The sound of running water will help block out the noise of your neighborhood and replace it with a pleasing, soothing sound. Ambient noise from fountains is used frequently in commercial settings to set the tone and create an enjoyable atmosphere and more and more homeowners are realizing the same benefits.
- A custom carved stone water fountain is not just beautiful and relaxing but it adds value to your home. Whether you use it indoors or outdoors, it is durable and able to stand the test of time. Additionally, by custom building your natural stone water fountain you can blend it seamlessly with the architectural style of your home to not just enhance beauty but enhance value as well. If or when you go to sell your home, buyers will be attracted to the beautiful addition of a water fountain that has upgraded your home.
